Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

This is why McCain desperately wants a select committee on Benghazi:

WASHINGTON -- Just four years ago, John McCain was the leader of the GOP. Today, he's the highest-ranking Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee, a perch from which the former fighter pilot is deeply engaged in the national conversation over war, terrorism and intelligence gathering.
But in January, the Arizona senator will lose his top-ranking committee seat due to term limits. The only ranking Republican spot available to him next session will be on the Indian Affairs Committee.
Unless, that is, the Senate creates a brand-new select committee.
On Wednesday, McCain, flanked by Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.), proposed just that: a select committee with extensive authority to investigate the Benghazi, Libya, attack and the U.S. government's response.
The Republican most likely to hold the ranking spot on such a panel would be, of course, John McCain, giving the Arizona senator a new burst of relevance.

33. Term limits haven't worked well in California.

It takes at least a term for a legislator to just learn how the system works and who everybody is and what to expect from co-legislators. You just can't put 50 people who don't really know each other in a room and expect them to govern well.

We would open ourselves up to chaos and ultimately a dictatorship if we sent neophytes, all neophytes to our legislatures, say every eight years. (That would be four two-year terms.) Our legislators already rely on lobbyists and career aides to write legislation. We need experienced lawmakers as long as they have integrity and are energetic and healthy and honest.

14. Uh...yeah. That happened. Except neither man ever said so:

"....the Bush campaign circulated the rumor that Kerry wanted John McCain for his running mate.

Instead of checking the story out, the media ran the story - it showed up in some form or the other on every newscast, in every newspaper. Then, the follow-up rumor that McCain had turned Kerry down was also circulated and unquestioningly run.

None of it was true, as it turns out - Kerry not only had not considered McCain for VP, he never asked him, so of course, was never turned down.

But the story ran, right on Bush "media command center" schedule, right before John Edwards was asked to be VP, in order to make Edwards look like a second choice. If you trace the worst lies and most blatant propaganda-posing-as-news to their source, you will find the slithery trail leads to A.P. (Associated Press or, as I call them, A.merican P.ropaganda). "

6. You don't seem to notice how the Middle East is disintegrating before our eyes.

 

Benghazi was the tip of the iceberg. I hope people are prepared for sky high oil prices should this situation deteriorate further.

The CIA was in Benghazi to track weapons that may be used against our allies or God forbid, us.

To think McCain is simply grasping at power is to not understand how serious the situation is.

10. I am paying attention to the Middle East!

Benghazi has enough committees investigating! As to what the CIA was doing there, I don't believe anything they say. They could have been tracking weapons or preparing for a Jill Kelly visit. If they were using it for such a vital mssion, they screwed the hellout of it. Not only did they not have enough intelligence to prepare for the attack, they put a lot of civilians in trouble with their presence.

Benghazi is a sidenote to the real Middle East problems. I think Israel/Gaza, Iran and Syria are way ahead of that to name just three.

McCain is increasingly a bitter old man who I don't believe or trust either. That committee would just be another group of grumps attacking Obama.

I understand the situation quite well thank you. You go ahead and believe the CIA and McCain all you want. You'd have better results believing in the Tooth Fairy.

"If they were using it for such a vital mssion, they screwed the hellout of it. Not only did they not have enough intelligence to prepare for the attack..."

Richard Haas expressed something similar asking why a sizable CIA presence was so lacking in security. He thinks it was simple incompetence which is an uncomfortable realization as you consider we may be as blind to all the other threats that are emerging.

This piece scared the bejeebers out of me:

21. Well, you can thank the colonial powers

for beginning this hot mess. They drew arbitrary lines making countries composed of ill-fitting groups and installed rulers. Once they did that, the die was cast. At some point, the people who were seperated were going to rebel because they were forced together by tyrants like Saddam.

Once Saddam was gone, the groups under his thumb flew apart. Am I saying that we should have left him alone? No. However, there was no plan to try to put in place because W, Rummy, and the rest were barely able to plan ahead for their lunch breaks much less anything bigger.

I don't want to know who has gawd knows what weapons and what they are planning. Somebody with an ounce of sense better be looking. i have no idea who that is.The US has sent eleventy billion much less what other countries have supplied. Good luck finding where they are.

59. Huh? They were tracking Gaddafi's 20k missing ground to air missiles.

That the rebels were using to shoot at tanks (with little success) and selling on the black market (with mixed success).

Small arms (which the French provided; not the US) are easily acquired in Africa.

They were worried about Gaddafi's missiles.

If this situation was so dire that it warranted a special committee headed by McCain, he would have bothered to show up at the meeting specifically set up to address the issues involving Benghazi. Instead, he chose to throw a petulant, fact free tantrum in front of the press.

Or were we sending weapons from there? Assuming weapons were being shipped out, who was shipping them out and why?

It has been reported in some articles that the US was sending weapons to jihadist rebels in Syria. Why would we support jihadists in Syria? That does not make a lot of sense to me.

The CIA sometimes does what it pleases, or it certainly seems that way.

Someone or ones need to look into this to make sure that the CIA isn't reverting to its bad old self, but I don't think that a McCain led committee is the way to go.

37. The US imports less than 4 million barrels of oil from Libya per month which represents

...a little over 1% of total US monthly oil imports. It is extremely unlikely that any disruption of the flow of oil from Libya will affect gas prices in the US.

As to your other comment, are you trying to tell us that you're privy to classified information regarding what the CIA was doing in Benghazi? You have no clue what the CIA was doing in Benghazi, do you?

As far as McCain is concerned, he knows he's about to become totally irrelevant and virtually powerless in the Senate. Reid has already slapped down the idea proposed by a couple of RW loons to give him a new committee to investigate Benghazi and related activities.

You must think all DUers are completely stupid to believe your RW talking points. Try it out on Free Republic or Red State....I'm positive they'll love it.

The Benghazi kerfuffle is nothing more than the latest attempt by Republicans to impeach a re-elected Democratic President on whatever outrage du jour they thought they could use for the task.

The reason Benghazi was picked and not some other nonsense is because Benghazi involves covert CIA agents and classified information. These things cannot be made public so the President cannot be publicly exonerated. In other words, it's the perfect lie because the truth cannot be publicly told.

Anyone who raises this nonsense is unworthy of consideration.

42. There aren't

Or more precisely, there isn't a real rule creating term limits.

Part of Gengrich's crap in 1994 was an attack on all those evil legislators hanging on to their committee seats forever. That really annoyed the young legislators that propelled Gengrich to power. So the Republicans tried to create formal term limits that would apply to everyone.....and failed.

What they were able to do is create term limits within the Republican caucus. So Republicans have term limits on their committee seats, and Democrats do not.

In the Republican caucus, the term limits are limits on consecutive terms, not total terms. So in McCain's case, he's looking at either not being the ranking member on a committee for 2 years, or spending the next 2 years at Indian Affairs before he can get his old seat back. Either option will greatly reduce his importance to the Sunday shows.

The term limits are rules in the Republican caucus.

Gengrich and friends tried to create limits on everyone, because the young legislators that propelled him to power hated that the "old people" had all the good seats.

Those "old people" and the Democrats blocked Gengrich's term limits. As a consolation prize, Gengrich and friends created term limits within the Republican caucus.

had it been McCain vs Gore in 2000, there's little doubt Stumpy would have won.

Now he's reduced to casting about desperately.. looking for some sort of scandal to pull down our newly elected President. what a load of crap.

35. The Senate committee term limits are just a Republican thing

In the 1990s, the Republicans adopted rules that limit their own Senators to six years as a committee chair and another six as a ranking member. The Democrats don't have such limits.

There are similar limits on House Republicans, except that there it's only six years in both positions combined. Here's an article from last spring about Paul Ryan being term-limited out of his position as House Budget Committee chairman next year unless they grant him a waiver: http://www.rollcall.com/issues/57_130/Paul_Ryan_Presents_GOP_Term_Limits_Dilemma-214265-1.html

It also seems like the extreme conservatives and Tea Partiers within the GOP are against any attempts to waive the term limits, because they see maintaining them as a way for their own people to move up and replace relative moderates. (http://www.redstate.com/dhorowitz3/2012/05/16/keep-term-limits-on-committee-chairmen/)

Could be some interesting battles on the horizon. Who's got the popcorn?
